Having problems with your Vacuums ?
Spotbot won't shut off, handpiece won't work.
\015 When I run the Bissel Spotbot I am unable to use the manual hand cleaner, it will not work when trying to select it from the controls. When I try to turn on the unit to use the main system it starts up, but when you hit the stop button it will not stay off, but will stay off as long as I hold the stop button. I must unplug it to keep it off. \015\012\015\012Thinking it has to do with the control panel I was looking into trying to get to the panel, but i'm at a loss on that. It's already out of warranty of course, so that's the only reason i'm getting into the system.\015\012\015\012Paul\015

I have a hoover windtunnel upright vacuum, It will not shut off and I have to unplug it to do so. If I take apart the upper handle and manually flip the internal switch it works just fine, only when using the external switch on the handle, wont shut off.
This is a common problem with this machine. The switch has too much resistance to be turned on and off with the switch button and rod. If you put in a new switch, ( # 28161075 ), your problem should be fixed. ... Vacuums

From your description, you problem sounds like it could be an electrial one, not very hard to diagnose, but some dis-assembly is required. you would have to remove the hood, motor cover, turbine just to get to the motor.

The problem has been getting worse. It works, then cuts off. Then works and cuts off. Making sure the canister is not full. Time b/w it working is getting longer and longer. Almost seems this time when I change the outlet it is plugged into it works. But then shuts off quicker than it was doing before. I'm getting very frustrated.
We had exactly the same problem with our Animal. After the motor was replaced under warranty a different engineer came out and diagnosed it as the cyclone chamber itself being clogged.(the bit with the purple cylinders on it).

I have only had my shark steam mop for about a month and only used it twice. I tried to use it yesterday and it would not work. The green light came on and it worked for maybe ten seconds, then it completely shut off. I tried switching outlets and draining the water but nothing worked. It still doesn't work today either. What do you think is wrong? Does this product have a warranty?
Yes has warranty call Shark/europro. ... Euro-Pro Shark Steam Mop - Gray/ Purple Vacuum
Nothing inn the canister after using,suctione working,bottom roller working,no air leaks from hoses.Also when running awhile it shuts off by itself,have to wait awhile to use again
I'm not sure what vacuum you have, but that sounds like a blockage to me. Thermal shut off kicks in, shutting the motor down, to prevent damage from overheating. After waiting like 1 hour it probably comes back on. Make sure hose, filters, bag (if an ... Vacuums

Roomba Schedular I have a Roomba Scheduler and it has worked great until recently. Suddenly it quit working. When it is charging the power light goes from red to green as it should, showing it is ready to use. When we turn it on to use, it will only go on for a few seconds then it shuts off like it is out of power. It is like it isn't really charged. Is there something I can try to make it work?
Let it charge for a full 24, or even 48 hours, regardless of the green light. If it still dies you probably need a new battery.. or worse. ... Roomba Robotic Floor Bagless Vacuum

Our Dyson upright vaccumms beater bar wont move. the vaccumm will **** up air but the bar underneath wont move. The gears are not working property.

My Dyson DC17 beater bar motor works intermittedly. I have to almost whack it on the floor to turn it on and then shuts off again. I have checked the belt and it is fine, also have checked for blockages. The switch to turn the beater bar on or off will not work when the beater bar motor is off. the suction is fine though.

My suction wont work. It works for about 2 swipes and then quits. When you stop and restart it does the same. It is only 2 months old!!!!!
Hopefully you don't have a bad impeller on the suction motor. Start with this though: Make sure that you check for obstructions in ALL of the tubes, from the brushes all the way to the bag/canister.

My electrolux oxygen vacuum cleaner shut off and will not turn back on. It's less than a year old, but I bought it off Craig's list--they were the orginal owner and they said they bought it in May of 2008. I've only used it a few times and it worked fine except for the last time when it suddenly just shut off. I thought maybe it had come unplugged and I didn't really worry about it because I was finished vacuuming. But, I went to use it tonight and it would not turn on at all--no lights, nothing

I have a DC 17. In the middle of vacuuming the vacuum stopped working when it was in the upright position. It only works when the head is down and i am using the bar. I can not use the extension bar, becasue when I put the vacuum upright it shuts off. Where is the problem?
Hi there, it's Jack at Dyson.\012 \012 Like most Dyson vacuums, DC17's main suction motor is protected by a thermostat which shuts the machine down if it starts to overheat. This could be due to a blockage, and the filter may also need a wash ... Dyson DC17 Animal Bagless Upright Cyclonic Vacuum
The hand-held wand wont slide back into the tube. It wont go down far enough to click in and become the handle again. It was working fine but all of the sudden won't fit back in.
Sounds like the tube has something inside of it that is obstructing the path. veriffy the the "female" end of the tube isnt obstructed, and also, make sure that nothing is bent ( which can happen easily). use a flashlight to shine down into the tubes ... Dyson Ball DC24 Bagless Upright Vacuum
Carpet attachment attachment appears to have poor/intermittent connection. When initiated, it works for <30 seconds before shutting down. Suction still works but carpet attachment doesn't. Near impossible to restart.
Mine became intermittant so I took apart the exteding wand section. I found that power is transmitted to the cleaning head through a ribbon cable which was damaged (burnt) from repeatedly adjusting the length of the wand. A new wand correct the probl ...
